This is the oldest rivalry in the NBA, as both teams have faced each other at the postseason the most times, a total of 19 series, and the Celtics have won 12 of those.

It is also considered as the second most important rivalry in the league, just second to the Celtics-Lakers rivalry.

This clash of teams had its peak back when Wilt Chamberlain of the 76ers and Bill Russell of the Celtics played each other from 1965 to 1968.

And, the team had its most glorious moment during the 1966-67 season, when the team managed to set a record by winning 68 of the 81 games, which ended with the Celtics 8-year title reign, leading to the “Boston’s Dead” chants.

The 76ers started rebuilding during the early seventies, and became relevant once again during the 76-77 season, defeating the Celtics, and then making it to the Finals.
